Museum itself was super interesting. But has some things to be changed. Workers made us exit 20 minutes before museum timetable. Moreover, they also have left their working positions earlier. Museum wasnt clean. A lot of dust, portrets were hanging crookedly.

We enjoyed every minute of this museum. We learned a lot from the museum itself and from a family member that gave us a lot of background info about Santo Domingo. Great photo opportunities here as well.

This was the most interesting of all the museums in the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo. It has three wings filled with artifacts and information on the history of the Dominican Republic. Admission is 100 pesos per person and includes and audio tour- however, I did not find the audio description very detailed. If you can read Spanish, there are lots of material to read. If you are interested in history, this is the museum to visit - definitely not as crowded as Alcázar de Colon.

This rating means neutral, not average as we hadn't a chance to visit it.
During our 3 days in SD it was closed all the time without any notice, but a short inscription in Spanish I did not understand.

Exposition was all over the place, Colonialism, independence, Truhillo etc. nothing was explained properly and the guide was always mentioning how poor he is, looking for some dollars.

This is supposed to be Santo Domingo's best museum yet it falls short of what you expect of a city that prides itself on being the first European settlement in America..Pickings are slim and the objects on display make you beg for more.A few period manuscripts ( good luck navigating them) justify the 100 pesos entrance fee.Go early because they close at 5pm.

There are audio guides for English speakers, which was the bulk of my interaction

This museum is HUGE compared to others in Zona Colonial. If you want to take photos, bring a friend, not much selfie potential.

Very cool and interesting to go to. If you aren't interested in history that's cool, skip this one.

This was one of the stops of our Santo Domingo day trip and it was my favorite part of the entire excursion. Our group split between two guides - one in Spanish and the other in English. Our guide from the museum was very detailed in his presentation and clearly very passionate about the different pieces in the collection.

I'm not sure what the cost of entry would be on its own but I would highly recommend making time to stop by this museum.
